Faculty of Nursing Strategic Plan 2017-2020

The University of Calgary's Faculty of Nursing fosters an environment of leadership, engagement and inquiry that underpins all our activities: teaching, learning, research and community service.

Leading the pursuit of excellence means that we have a clear sense of a preferred future for nursing. We focus on goals and activities with passion and resolve, determined to make a difference. We are ambitious, creative, inspired by those we serve, impatient for change and informed by evidence.

This pursuit of excellence in teaching, research and practice has led us to develop these strategic priority foci for the next four years:

Leadership for nursing excellence

Wellness for work and study

Research to promote health across the lifespan in the areas of:

         • Advancement of nursing education
         • Child and family mental health
         • Living well with chronic conditions

View the 2012-2016 Strategic Plan Book

In October 2011, the Faculty of Nursing embarked on the beginning of the strategic plan process by engaging stakeholders, from across the health care community, in workshops, interviews and group consultations. Almost one year later, a final document was approved by the faculty’s Executive Committee. This document – the Faculty of Nursing Strategic Plan 2012 - 2016 – outlines ambitious initiatives for significant contributions to the University of Calgary’s Eyes High strategic direction and to firmly ground our faculty as a Canadian leader in nursing education and research.
